The European Tour heads to Hamburg for the European Open at Green Eagle. Before placing a bet, check out the form stats supplied by Andy Swales ...

"If you take a look at the leading pros teeing-up this week, very few appear to be in great form right now."

The European Tour heads to Germany for the second time this season.

Five weeks ago it was the BMW International Open in Munich, now the golfers head to the north of the country for the European Open at Green Eagle, some 25 miles south of Hamburg.

For those driving off on Thursday, water will be a constant threat over Green Eagle's North Course which is expected to provide a stern challenge for all 156 golfers taking part.

Water comes into play on most of the holes at this nine-year old course, which is hosting a top level Tour event for the first time.


Out of Form

Strangely, if you take a look at the leading pros teeing-up this week, very few appear to be in great form right now.

One of the rare exceptions is Englishman Matthew Southgate who tied-for-sixth at Royal Birkdale on Sunday.

Southgate was also a joint runner-up in the Irish Open earlier this month, so should be full of confidence as he searches for a maiden Tour victory.

Another golfer from the home counties who looks in decent shape right now is Anthony Wall.

The Londoner failed to qualify for The Open but, after a week's rest, will be keen to continue his recent good form which yielded a top-20 finish in Ireland and tie-for-fourth at the Scottish Open.


American Challenge

PGA Tour players Patrick Reed, Jimmy Walker and Pat Perez have decided to hang about for another week in Europe, although Walker was the only one of this trio to make the cut at The Open.


German Record

Regarding golfers whose recent record in Germany looks strong, then pickings - once again - are a little thin on the ground.

Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat has posted three top-12 finishes from his last four visits to the country, while Rikard Karlberg has enjoyed a brace of top-fives during the past two years.

Belgian Thomas Detry tied-second in the BMW tournament last month and Hennie Otto has had reasonable success on the parkland courses of Europe.

Two others to consider are Joost Luiten and Thorbjorn Olesen. The consistent Luiten posted top-20 finishes in his last two German events, while Olesen recently claimed a podium spot in France.
